An Offer I Can‘t Refuse

An Offer I Can‘t Refuse

Screenwriter Stephanie Mickus hasn‘t seen a lot of movies. While she‘s perfectly fine with this, other people seem to think her life is seriously lacking. She‘s decided that she‘ll finally watch some of the films the world thinks she can‘t live without, but only if she can talk about them on a podcast. Listen as Stephanie, along with co-host Aaron Hertzog and their very special guests have sometimes hilarious, occasionally serious, and always interesting discussions about movies, why we love the things we love, and why some things may not hit the same for everyone.
